So I’ve decided to make it a regular thing and the next one is going to be on Thursday 25th June. The menu is as follows: Canapé Devilled quail eggs Starter Sauté scallop with samphire apple and chilli vinnaigrette Soup Chilled English pea soup with cucumber and mint crème fraîche raw radish Main course Hay baked turbot with jersey royals and pickled baby gem seaweed and mustard … [Read more...]

Is Your Body Image Tied To Your Weight?

We live in a society that values how someone looks, above almost anything else. This is more so for women, but men definitely aren’t spared. These standards of perfectly lit and airbrushed women and bulging and muscle-bound men are near impossible to reach. But this doesn’t change our desire (or belief) that with enough effort and dedication we can get there. With this as the backdrop, it then becomes common place that when someone has issues around food or body image, they believe it is because of how they look. That if they can lose more weight, then things will get better. If they get … [Read more...]

Being Healthy Should Be Fun

Singing in the car

There is a great anecdote in Alfie Kohn’s Punished By Rewards. Kohn used to be a teacher and talks about giving a young student a lift home one time. She wasn’t a very good student and was labeled as someone who had trouble learning. During the trip home Kohn had the radio on and this student spent the whole journey singing every song, word for word. While she may have had trouble concentrating and remembering things in class, she was totally present while listening and singing, and knew every verse and key change. I remember a similar situation when I used to work an office job. I would … [Read more...]

What I Learnt From Running A Marathon (For The Third Time)

Post Marathon

On the 11th April I ran the Milan marathon. This was my third marathon, although the last one had been over 6 years ago. I know for lots of people who decide to do a marathon it is a grueling regime of different types of runs – intervals, short runs, long runs. They are running three and four times a week and build up their distance over time, with this process usually starting 4-6 months before the actual race. I was the complete opposite and I barely did any training. I decided to do the marathon almost as an afterthought as I kept seeing pictures of friends training together on … [Read more...]

Free Webinar On Improving A Woman’s Cycle


So all last week I sent you articles about supporting a woman’s cycle. It’s an issue that nearly every woman I see is suffering with and one that I’m regularly asked about. Well the articles went down really well. I got lots of emails and comments about them, which is nice. And seeing as it’s something that is so important to so many women I’ve decide to put on a webinar about it. I will be hosting a webinar called "Taking Control Of Your Cycle". Here is just a snippet of what we’ll cover: What is the “survival order of needs” and how it affects your cycle Why changing your … [Read more...]

Foods To Support Your Cycle

Foods To Help Your Cycle

So far this week I have talking about different aspects of a woman’s cycle. I’ve been giving you tips and ideas so that you can better understand and improve it. Today I want to give you some food suggestions. Before I jump into a couple of specific foods, let’s start with the basics. The first things I always focus on with clients is making sure they are doing the foundational stuff right. By foundational stuff I mean making sure that they are eating enough calories, that they are eating often enough, that they are eating foods that they can digest, and eating in a relaxed manner. If … [Read more...]

Anovulatory Cycles

Anovulatory Cycles

Today I want to talk about something that is rather common in women. It’s something that is more likely to happen as you get into your 30s and 40s, but can still happen in younger women. What I am referring to is anovulatory cycles, which is where you get your period even though you haven’t ovulated. A woman’s cycle can be broken into the two phases. The first two weeks are known as the follicular stage as this is about building up the follicle, which you can think of as the egg. The second two weeks are known as the luteal phase and the focus here is on continuing to build up the … [Read more...]
